Default ZIP Files in WinXP

I'm using latest version of Flash, I know there was a ZIP issue with XP fixed in the 1.3 betas just before 1.4 came out, so I'm not sure if this is related as I wasn't running XP at the time.

In the local view, if I browse to a directory with a bunch of files in it, ZIP files sort to the top just under the directories. ie:


And if I double click the ZIP files (i've got "on double click (local)" set to "execute file"), it puts the ZIP up top where the current folder is usually showing, and leaves the file window empty.

I am NOT using compressed folders, and I have ZIP files associated with WinZIP, when I double click them anywhere else (not in FlashFXP), they open properly.

zips are sorted on top because of how windows xp is designed, it actually tricks FlashFXP into thinking it's a real folder. A low level validation is required to verify whether or not is really is a folder.

We had hoped that most issues were addressed but unfortunately we missed a couple. (double-click & sorting, anything else?)

We hope to offer a public beta next week and an official update by the end of the month.

I have encountered several setbacks this month and I am way behind. I lost 5 days when my pc died and a few more trying to get a new message board set back up.
